Spent time over weekend and Monday/Tuesday investigating PCA fits and mass estimates for DR7 quasars. Rafiee is now running PCA fitting with revised error calculation.
Also thought a fair bit about simultaneous reconstruction & dereddening of quasar spectra.
Skypes with Chajet and Rafiee on Monday.
Tuesday: Finished reading, and sending email to, Jon Trump on his recent paper. Also spend more time thinking about PHL 1811 analogs, and inspecting candidate analogs/WLQs from Plotkin et al. 2010ab.
